Forum: texts Subject: Re: Duplicate files/books?

Can you give an example book your trying to search for duplicates?

Gutenberg and Google books are uploaded here. There appear to be over half a million Google scans, and I suppose all of Gutenberg (I have not checked, but Gutenberg only has around 25k books or so).

Although there are a lot of "duplicates", keep in mind each book scan is unique, since there are things like marginalia (notes in margins), different editions, different quality of book condition, scan quality, etc.. I know personally when searching for a particular book I appreciate having many scans to choose from.
